Food in Australia (free subject)
Even if Australia is not very famous for its food, there are a lot of products we don’t use in France and that are a part of the Australian everyday life. First how can we talk about Australia without mentioning Vegemite!? IT is a dark brown Australian food paste made from leftover brewers' yeast extract with various vegetable and spice additives. The Australians usually eat this paste with bread or cracker biscuits. Personally I really don’t like it! To give you an idea of the taste, Vegemite is salty, slightly bitter and malty, and rich in unami – similar to beef bouillon.
Then another product often eaten is the biscuits from Tim Tam. Tim Tam is a brand of chocolate biscuit made by the Australian food company Arnott's and available in several countries. A Tim Tam is composed of two layers of chocolate malted biscuit, separated by a light chocolate cream filling, and coated in a thin layer of textured chocolate.
The meat pie is a popular ready-cooked dish in Australia. We can find it in every restaurant and some fast foods. It is normally served with a gravy sauce and chips.
Finally kangaroo meat is also a typical thing to eat. Even if it sounds crazy it is the most common and widely available food there in Australia. You need to know that the kangaroo has been historically a staple source of protein for indigenous Australians. Kangaroo meat is stronger in flavour than the meat from commercially-raised food animals. It is considered to be tender. Minced (or ground) kangaroo meat may be substituted in dishes where minced beef would normally be used.
I tried it during a barbecue for breakfast one morning and I found it pretty good! What does it taste like? Well it’s a bit like beef or buffalo but harder to eat. This meat tastes gamey.
